    Capricorn Pirates 

Capricorn Pirates

  • Aerith and Bob: Expect the Capricorns names to range from "Molly O'Flannigan" or "Sadie Hawkins" to "Wolfgang Katsuragi" or "Heathcliffe Sarutobi" to even "Z.G." or "Yuki-Rin".
  • Cool Boat: The Hyperion.
  • Culture Chop Suey: The Capricorns are of various ethnicities, from Japanese to Irish to Chinese to American to even Portuguese.
  • True Companions


Molly O'Flannigan

Hatori Chidori

Heathcliffe Sarutobi

  • Abusive Parents: His parents kicked him out of the house for refusing to conform to Tenryuubito society. It's probably a contributing reason as to why Heathcliffe is a Broken Bird.
  • Bishounen
  • Broken Bird: He was shunned by the World Nobles and their families for not acting like them. It is really driven home when Heathcliffe's family - thinking he died - put him in a coffin and sent him to sea when he was asleep. Heathcliffe then had to play his guitar on the streets for money and live alone in filthy, unsafe tenement housings for a year, until Yuki-Rin found Heathcliffe - who was filthy, lice-infested, starving, and begging on the streets - and took him into the crew.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Heathcliffe is quite popular among readers of the fanfic.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • 100% Heroism Rating: Mr. Fanservice helped a lot in this. The authoress of the fic even Lampshades this my mentioning "Heathcliffe fangirls", "Heathcliffe's fangirls", and other variations on those two terms.
  • Leitmotif: Build God, Then We'll Talk by Panic! at the Disco.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: A major part of his backstory. Grew up as one of the three sons of Saint Sarutobi, a World Noble. He only had his two brothers, Holden and Soren, to hang out with since the commoner kids shunned Heathcliffe for being a Noble's son and the kids of Nobles shunned him for not conforming to Noble society. Then, it got Invoked and Heathcliffe was kicked out of his home and forced to live in filth and poverty for a year, living through hunger, lack of a proper shower, lice, and death. Fortunately, things turn around for Heathcliffe and he's got some good friends (and his brothers and his girlfriend) backing him up.
  • Perky Goth
  • The Quincy Punk
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Heathcliffe is the sensitive man to Kazuma's manly man. While Kazuma is a Hot-Blooded boy who lives by a man's code of honor, Heathcliffe is somewhat of a Sharp-Dressed Man at times and has a loving relationship with Aki.
  • Sinister Scythe: Uses a scythe that will sometimes contain the ghost of Isabella Sarutobi, his deceased grandma.
  • Street Urchin: Was one for a year until he joined the Capricorn Pirates.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Does one in the Tequila Wolf Arc to disguise himself from his own father.

Matsu Takeshima

  • The Cutie: The opposite to Karin's sexiness
  • Girl Next Door
  • Leitmotif: Don't Give Up (You Are Loved) by Josh Groban.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother dies two years before the story begins while trying to protect the family yacht during a bad storm.
  • Ojou: Has the personality, clothes, and wealth of one.
  • Team Mom
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: She's grown up with Kartik all of her life, and she constantly wonders why Kartik won't take their relationship further. Plus, there's also Karin competing for Kartik's attention.
  • UST: Implied to have UST with Kartik.

  • Idiot Hero
  • Keet
  • Knife Nut
  • Leitmotif: Ain't no Rest for the Wicked by Cage the Elephant.
  • Sex Slave: Was nearly forced to become one during the Triad Arc. Thankfully, he escapes from the Dragon Lady's brothel before anything bad happens to him.
  • Stepford Smiler: Played straight, because Daisuke had to witness his Vitriolic Best Bud, Yulia, kill his grandmother because she was Brainwashed and Crazy when it happened. It's also implied that Daisuke's grandma was either the only relative he had or that his grandma was his last known living relative before her death.

  • You've Gotta Have Green Hair

  • Broken Bird: Her mother passed away shortly before she and Showtarou ended up with the Capricorn Pirates.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Happened to her at the climax of the Mr. Chung-Feng Arc where her own father took her spear, broke it, and used the same spear to nearly kill Heathcliffe.
